I stirred up some controversy last summer when I posted my synthesizer arrangement of Mercury. Since then I've been busy :-) I've finally completed all of The Planets: http://soundcloud.com/mike-leghorn/sets/the-planets
I don't mean to stir up more controversy by advertising this on the Composers' Forum. I figured that since I put poured my heart and soul (and about 500 hours of my time) into this project, that it's worth announcing here. Anyway, I consider this kind of arranging as a sort of composing.
Also, I apologize for posting a link to my soundcloud site. The seven tracks are too large to put on my profile page.
In this interpretation I strove to preserve the underlying spirit of The Planets while immersing the listener in an abstract sound world that is unique, yet as rich and detailed as a real orchestra. All sounds used were synthesized, i.e. no samples were used.
I've enabled download on all seven tracks, which are 360kbps MP3. I'm looking for a record label to distribute this, ideally in uncompressed format.
I hope you enjoy, and I welcome all feedback!
